Annandale is the penultimate station heading westbound on New Jersey Transit's Raritan Valley Line towards High Bridge. The station, located in the Annandale section of Clinton Township, New Jersey, is located at the end of Main Street, near Interchange 18 on Interstate 78. The station boasts one low-level side platform, with a shelter, 77 parking spaces and bicycle racks.[1] The station depot at the station, constructed by the Central Railroad of New Jersey, was demolished in 1983.[4] Plans are in final stages to revamp the station's lighting, parking and pavement to help expand parking for the station, which commonly has 110 – 130 cars parked in it.[5]
